    Cool looking bazaar! I will have to put it on my hit list! My family and I have just started planning our year long RTW trip. Your pictures are really inspiring us!

  3. I was going to write something about the Grand Bazaar, but I chanced upon yours. Never in a million years will I be able to do justice… great photos! I’m an amateur so I’ve been walking around taking pictures with my phone! Did you buy anything from the Bazaar? I bought a lamp and had the pleasure of protecting throughout the rest of my trip.

  4. Ahh finally you’ve made it to Istanbul! 🙂 I can’t wait for more pictures and stories from the city. It feels like yesterday that I walked down the alleys of the Grand Bazaar.

    • Thanks pushandreset! Yes, I did buy a few things. No lanterns, sadly… I couldn’t have packed them, nor would I know how to hang them in my little apartment in Tbilisi. I bought a nice leather bag embellished with traditional Turkish carpet pieces, and a few other trinkets. And of course, turkish delights, pistachios, and a few evil eyes.

    • I did, Alison! No lanterns or pashminas sadly, but a nice leather bag decorated with pieces of handmade Turkish carpet, some cool shoes, and lots of edible goodies. More stories to come soon!
